Todays social media connects all of us together so this web site just brings the view of the “old “ days (though included is a section just for the lads) a brief look back in photos.
In September 1966 nearly a hundred young lads most fresh from school enlisted into her majesty,s airforce. For 2 years we were whipped into shape in preparation for active service in the RAF . After our 2 years of training the RAF decreed we go our separate ways ,some stayed in contact but eventually we drfted apart It wasn,t till about 2007 that some members started looking to what became of them young lads and with the help of the www. internet about half of 207 were found
One person can be credited with this search – doggedly Mel Williamson scowered the records Internet world wide . Mel had turned into a charismatic character though when in training with us he showed signs of what he was going to become. Mel worked hard that year and he organised an anniversary event ,a get together ,40 years from when we parted company which was attended by 30 plus of us. Sadly Mel has passed away with Pete Sinclair and Terry Hempsall both who also attended the reunion
